Amish man denied new trial in hate crimes case

YOUNGSTOWN

A federal judge denied a new trial today in the case of an Amish man who was convicted of hate crimes.

Samuel Mullet, Sr., 66, of Bergholz, Ohio, was convicted by federal jury in September on seven counts, including four counts of religious motivated beard-and-hair cutting attacks.

Mullet had requested an acquittal or new trial based on three arguments: insufficient evidence at trial; newly discovered evidence and the admission of certain pieces of evidence that he claimed constituted “a miscarriage of justice,” specifically an Associated Press article and evidence of defendant’s sexual relationship with one of his daughters-in-law, according to court records.

U.S. District Judge Dan Aaron Polster denied the request.
